I don't like Poe or Lovecraft, their story endings are too RELIABLY miserable, and now that I'm not even a kid anymore, they upset me. I love horror stories, I gravitate to that and always have, so let's not hear any, "You obviously don't enjoy horror or you'd appreciate the masters, so why don't you go read a romance?" I'm just as shunned by romance lovers for the same cloddish failure to love what's lovely and so why don't I go read a horror story?
I do love and crave CBSRMT, however, along with a fine glut of others.

It was Berenice
I think Doug was referring to the 75-01-09 episode "Berenice" (I looked it up; apparently there was a public outcry from readers after it was first published and I'm not surprised).

Which Poe Story????
DougBee in his review comments on "the episode based on an obscure Poe story".
Whis story was that? There are six of Poe's stories on this page. None of them is what I would call "obscure". I wish DougBee would tell us which one he was speaking of.

This episode, loosely based on an obscure Poe story, has a particularly creepy ending. I went back and found the Poe story and, while CBSRMT greatly altered the plot, they successfully captured Poe's horrific climax and use of a unreliably psychotic narrator.

nice but check you files
the cbsrmt files page 10 on the Mask of the RedDeath, check it. The file speeds up to Donald
Duck after a minute of playtime. In fact, check all the programmes on page 10. Thank you.
